5. Embracing the Vulnerability of Black Motherhood with Bre Scullark
Irina talks with mother, yogi, entrepreneur, and model Bre Scullark about what it was like to be exiting the fourth trimester just as the entire world shuts down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We discuss how she has embraced motherhood after a tough pregnancy, standing up for herself when she knew breastfeeding was not a part of her parenting journey, and being a Black mom during this summer’s Black Lives Matter protests over the killing of George Floyd and the continued police brutality faced by Black and Brown communities.
